Igor Markevitch

8.99 € 4.49 €

This CD is a fascinating document of an entire concert presented in East Berlin at the Deutsche Staatsoper on 13 February 1970, affording the opportunity to hear Igor Markevitch conducting German and French repertoire. He clearly had a natural affinity with this music, a pointillistically detailed style and he was a true servant of the score as befits a composer with his particular leanings.
